    F.Kafusi to Graham,
    CHN to Mannering,
    Talaki to Radradra (via Suli)

    round 12 team
    Cook,
    Graham, Brown, Fai
    Gallen, Surgess, Crichton, Mannering, Whitehead, Elliot
    A.Reynolds, Nikorima, Frawley
    Aubusson, Fuimaono
    RTS, Cotric, Radradra

    18 players

    round 13  Whitehead to De Belin or Taumalolo

    Smith,
    Wallace, Graham, Brown, Fai
    Mannering, Elliot, (JDB or LOLO)
    Nikorima, Frawley
    Sione.M, Aubusson, Suli
    RTS, Slater, Cotric, Radradra, Hayne

    18 players

    sound good ?

    18 both rounds is awesome. Unfortunately fucks the loophole for you but that's kind of minor when taking into account you have a full house both rounds.

    Hey lads, notice everyone is bringing in guns, perhaps due to trade numbers.

    I have 22 so am looking st going sideways with a few midrangers.

    CHN > Elliot
    Yates > Glenn
    Kelly, Hayne, Suli > Semi

    Leaves me with around 100k minimum for next weekend if needed, first time really having a crack at the byes, is this too risky?

    Thoughts?

    I like the first and third, but I'm not sold on Glenn. Seems like throwing a trade away for 1 round. But yeah, you have the trades to do it. I like Joe Ofa if he gets a start too.

    If named to replace Maloney, Nu Brown could be a good cash out for Hampton maybe?

    Edit: I don't even know who you have in the halves, was looking at someone else's team, still Nu Brown for any Half you no longer want?

    Used NuBrown as a cash out a month ago for Jacks so here's hoping. Allthough Morts seems to be more likely now.

    I'm thinking:

    Smith to SJ via Knik
    CHN to Gallen
    Fifita to Graham

    Would give me for round 12:

    Knik Cook
    Graham Brown Musgrove Tualau
    Crichton Gallen Bodene Elliott
    ARey SJ Frawley Norman
    Hoppa Fui
    RTS Cotric

    Gives me 17 if one of Brown or Norman plays, but still 16 would be good as I would still be able to run out 17 next week. I like that I'm bringing in three uber guns but it's risky because I may run out of trades or money before I can get back in Smith and Fifita. I don't know if I can pull the trigger.

    You're looking at a truly horrendous HOK combo the next round unless you've got plans for an immediate upgrade of K-Niko. Your Smith trade doesn't really pan out since SJ will only play one bye round. If you're going trade Smith out, it's got to have some decent upside to it. Like getting Jake Friend in for two bye rounds and covering for Cook when he's on byes for instance

    McGuire - Graham
    CHN - Gallen
    Suli - Aubbs

    Anyone against these trades? I only want Aubbs if he is a keeper in the ctrs though.

    Thoughts?

    Cook's a sell though isn't he? I was thinking Cook to McInnes next week

    Smith won't make much money if he plays full minutes in non-bye rounds. But will he be rested and loose more money??
    Fifita will make money the next couple of times he plays. But he doesn't play much over the bye rounds. Will still cost more to trade him back in if you trade him out now.
    I know it's a lot of money sitting on the bench but I'm included to just save trading them out and in again. (I've burnt trades to date)

    When was the last time, if ever, Smith was rested after an origin game?

    Heya Mulvy

    Halves are Milf, Niko, Norman and Frawley. So Norman to Nubrown could be a go.

    Yeah for me too but I'm still holding out hope Norman has a quicker than expected recovery
